Yes - but "quartz" and concrete countertops are gaining in popularity due to generally lower cost and, with the fuzed quartz products, greater resistance to staining and discoloring and cracking.

Note when you said granite as a color, you need to google a phrase like this - granite countertop colors images - because granite comes in a wide variety of colors from various places around the world, from the basic gravestone gray commonly from Barre, VT to yellows, reds, greens, whites, and many variations of colored veins through the rock. And of course, there are other stones you can choose from.

I would google both natural and synthetic stone countertop patterns and colors to see whst you might like, then take pictures of your existing bathroom to a countertop company showroom or home improvement box store to get an in-person comparison, and to look at their samples and sample color books. There are also many sample pages online at manufacturer and distributor websites.

For a professional opinion, an Interior Decorator would be your professional - though likely to cost $150+ for a visit and consultation.

With a cream color, especially if it does not have color flecks or veining, you could use darn near any color without a conflict - though in a bathroom, especially a small one, you probably want to stay with paler/brighter colors rather than deep, darkening ones.
